    My fish died

    well I went to not so local LFS and got a new coral, but no fish. They had really big clowns or really small clowns. I was thinking of getting a medium sized clown, maybe a bit bigger then my last guy. He was so tiny.

    fish food ?

    also, how do you know the fish is eating enough? I turn my pumps off in the am and put a pinch of flakes in. Both my cleaner shrimp and clown come up and eat. There is no fighting for food as it spreads wide enough for both to eat. I watch for a while and my clown eats a fair amount. Then I go do other stuff. When I come back all the food is gone and I put pumps back on. Is there a guide on fish for fat and skinny fish? (you see them at the vets for dogs and cats)

    My fish died

    thanks. I didn't think it would be a big deal. I just posted a food question in the fish section. i am wondering if the food I was feeding him isn't nutrition enough. I know clowns are piggys and always act hungry, but I was getting the felling he WAS hungry, even though I feed him everyday. (Flakes daily, frozen mysis shrimp 1-2x a week for fish and tank) I just tested my water and ammonia, trites and trates are all 0. Calcium is 485, KH 7.7 and Mag is 1200. I was going to not so local LFS today to get a coral for my birthday, maybe I will get a fish too. It's not so exciting buying a new fish because one died. 😪

    fish food ?

    My little clown fish died over the weekend. I was wondering about the fish food I have been feeding. It's by Seachem, it's NutriDiet Marine flakes (probiotics formula) I usually feed the flakes every day, frozen mysis shrimp 1-2x a week for the fish and the tank. I went away for the weekend and told my husband not to feed. I figured he would be hungry when I got home, but he wouldn't drop dead. and then he did. 😪 I was wondering if maybe the flake food wasn't enough nutrition and should I get something better?

    My fish died

    I went away for the weekend, came home to a dead fish. Now I am fishless again. 😪 I was going to do a WC and feed a little heavy, told my husband not to do anything. I didn't get to do the WC (just did one on monday so wasn't too concerned), but forgot to feed. Not sure if that's why he died. The last 2 times I have left I lost something. Last month my frogspawn, this month my fish. Good thing I'm not going away for a long time.

    toadstool jumped off rock

    so funny, after I posted this, I walked by my tank and my toadstool was floating around. 😆 So, 10 minutes before I had to leave for work, I am pulling out my needle and thread and I tied him to the rock. we'll see how that works.

    Feeding my Red clawed crabs.

    is this an actual red clawed crab, or do you have red legged hermits? Not sure it matters, but they aren't the same critter, so I was curious

    Question about 10 gal quarantine tank

    I put LR in my QT tank, but I haven't put LS. Not sure why, but I just haven't. Personally I wouldn't put anything in either tank until they are cycled. Then I would start with s CUC. Honestly, I don't use the QT for coral, I just dip them before adding to the MT. I also don't keep my QT running all the time. I have the 16 gal Biocube, and I will do a 6 gal WC, using the 6 gal to set up my QT tank, along with 6 gal of fresh made SW. (I have a 12 gal JBJ nano cube for my QT) Not sure if this helps, just my 2 cents. I am loving the Biocube, just got it in June I think. Welcome to SW.

    Could this still be alive?

    I was reading on how to bring back a dead frogspawn, and I found a post from some guy that said his was "dead" for 3-4 months and it came back. He asked how normal that was and a lot of ppl said they had similar experience. Made me happy. Someone said as long as the skeleton is white it has a chance. We well see.

    still happy, but kinda rolled to the side. Not sure if he can attach with his bottom in the air. My husband keeps telling me to leave it alone.😁 But I might take him out and roll him back.

    It is about the same. I did move it into a lower flow area. The flesh comes out like the picture, then recedes again. But I guess as long as it does that, it's still alive.

    toadstool jumped off rock

    This toadstool has never been fragged. I had it's parent and it got too big for my tank so I had to trade it. It stood on 2 main rocks in my tank. I didn't want to cut it at the base so I took my finger and every day rubbed it firmly at the base until the toadstool let go. Took 3 days. Left over from that, was two blobs that grew into the toad stool I have now, and another one, that I traded. I don't know, was thinking of the thread way, but he seems happy right now, so I hate to bug him again. The weird thing is, the new toadstool I bought, I swear he's now moving off his little plug thing. Looks like he's inching his way over to my main rock. I wouldn't care if he did, kinda hated that thing he came on, though it's not a real plug. I guess I will watch him and hope he connects soon. thanks guys!

    toadstool jumped off rock

    nope, can't loosen it. It really is just barely on there. He floated away and got all mad again. I guess I will leave it and see what happens. I don't think it will hurt him though, right? How long should it take for him to attach to the rock?

    I don't want that to happen, not that way anyway. I will try and loosen it, wasn't sure if it was worth getting him mad again. thanks
